My Rating 83 Points.
Dark ruby in color with medium intensity and a cloudy reddish rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, plums, cherries, licorice, vanilla, wood, spices and peppercorn.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, earth, leather, chocolates, bitter herbs and vegetables.
Medium finish with medium tannins and tart cherries.
This is a good everyday cabernet from California. Nice balance with some complexity, and a nice and interesting finish.
An average California Cabernet. Drinking nicely now, but not one for long term aging.
I enjoyed it as a happy hour wine.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
